Wednesday 28th September

 A trip down to Gammon Head in South Devon this morning with 2 fellow birders Charlie Flemming and Dave Land to look for the Red-Billed Chough that have been in the area for a while now . And really rare  birds to be able to see in my home county of Devon !

After a bit of searching the fields we managed to see 3 of them and at one point we even had them coming down and feeding on the Hawthorn Berries .

Also seen was a female Hen Harrier that flew along the ridge of one of the fields and my 1st for a couple of years , 2 Eurasian Sparrowhawk , 2 Peregrine Falcon , 2 Common Kestrel and 4 Common Raven .

A couple of new Butterflies for the year were also seen with Clouded Yellow & Wall Brown .

A great day out with 2 good friends .
